Graduate Student Research Grant Program

Each fall semester the Killgore Research Committee requests proposals for the Graduate Student Research (GSR) grant program.  GSR grants are limited to $3,500, are open to all disciplines and are meant to educate the recipient in the philosophies, techniques and tools of research through the discovery of new knowledge leading to publication, performance or exhibition appropriate to the applicant's discipline. Funding may be used to support the recipient's thesis or dissertation research.
